My name is Charlie and I am really happiest being where my people are. I would love nothing more than the curl up on your lap or trot along with you on walks. If you are seeking a relaxed and easy-going friend to keep you company through your life, then I am the dog for you! Through thick and thin, I will be by your side. I am looking for a family that is kind and patient. I can be quite fearful in new environments and around new people.

Hope you enjoy having a shadow! Please come and meet me today!

"MOOSE" aka "ASPEN GRACE" Happy Adoption UPDATE!!!

Happy Adoption Update!

 

 Moose (Aspen Grace)  

Aug 2019

"Wonderful addition to our lives. Awesome adventure dog. She is super smart with a great personality. Many thanks to the shelter for saving this wonder dog. We were informed of some of her "issues", we worked through them. It's been a year since we brought her home and she continues to thrive, learn, teach...most of all bring a lot of joy to our lives. We definitely recommend this shelter, great people, great dogs!"   Matt O.


"Aspen Grace" LOVED playing in the Pool in the Mcas play-yard! Looks like she continues her water adventures in her new home :)

ADOPTED!!!
July 2018
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

I am Aspen Grace, a fun loving and energetic German Shepherd. Dogs like me love to get out and play but are not always sure what to do with our mouths. I can tend to get so excited I jump for the first thing I see, and the game is on! My ideal family will be active, patient and use positive training methods to help me become a more refined pup. I think working with a trainer would be a fun way for us to bond and learn together. I am eager to learn and can't wait to show you how smart I am! I will need to be the only animal in your home and if you have kids, they will need to be over the age of 8 years. Please come and meet me today!  1 yr 4 mths, 60lbs

"BUTTERSCOTCH" darling senior chi (Pug?)mix

ADOPTED!!!
Sept 2019

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Adoption information  
MCAS hours/ Location
 
Butterscotch, female chi/ (Pug?) mix, 14 yrs, 15 lbs
here's my Mcas weblink  Adopted!
196280
My name is Butterscotch. I am around 14 years old and weigh about 15lbs.
I am the dog who is always prepared for a marathon - as long as it is a movie marathon. There is nothing I love more than a cozy, warm bed and some good company. We can discuss our favorite foods while you give me pets and attention. One thing you should know is that I do not like to be picked up, otherwise I like to be petted and get treats. If there are kids in my new home, they should be at least 8 years old due to handling sensitivity.



This old gal wants to go home with you! Surely
someone would love to give Butterscotch a good retirement home?
She's a nice dog!

"MAGOO" senior Maltese - in foster home

ADOPTED!
Sept 2019

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Adoption information  
MCAS hours/ Location

Magoo, male Maltese mix, 15 yrs 8 lbs 
In Foster Home
 here's my Mcas weblink  adopted
196505
My name is Magoo or Nemo as my foster family calls me. I am seeking a quiet home where I can enjoy retired life. I am around 15 years old and weigh about 7lbs. I am sight and hearing impaired, but it doesn't stop me from meandering around and exploring. I am really happiest being where my people are. As I have aged, I have found that I really worry when I cannot be with you. I would love nothing more than the curl up on your lap and get petted. I would do best in a single story home or with a person who can help me up and down those pesky things. I am good with the house training and enjoy a good couple walks a day. I ride great in the car, don't seem to mind children or other pets. If you are seeking a relaxed and easy-going friend to keep you company, then I am the dog for you!
If you are interested in meeting me, please contact the foster coordinator at 503-988-6670 or email at foster@multco.us.


" BUNNIES!"

ADOPTED or Transferred!
Sept 2019

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Adoption information  
MCAS hours/ Location

Here is just one website that provides info about Rabbit care.

SEE ALL THE BUNNIES/ SMALL ANIMALS HERE
============
The more time and attention/gentle handling you give to a bunny, the more they will trust you and show their fun personalities! Bunnies can be very interesting animals, and great pets when they are socialized.
=============
Jasmine, female bunny, 6 mths
Mcas weblink
196003
Jasmine Is still learning that people are not scary. Be consistently gentle with them and your patience will be rewarded. Like most rabbits Jasmine is cautious around new people and situations, but does enjoy gentle pets and will eat greens out of your hand. Jasmine would love to go home with kids 8 and older.
Anastasia, female bunny, 1 yr 4.5 lbs,
Mcas weblink
195996
Anastasia Is a very active, curious bunny who is still a little shy of people. They probably haven't had much human interaction in their past, but is learning to associate humans with good things like food and pets. She needs to go home with kids 5 and older.
David Hasselhopp Jr., male bunny, 1 yr 6.8 lbs
Mcas weblink
194665
David Hasselhopp is a very handsome young rabbit who would appreciate a larger space to call his own. While Hasselhopp avoids being picked up here, he is fond of chew toys and loves to nibble on cardboard - you will want to have a good supply of appropriate chew toys! Like most rabbits, he is rather curious, please take extra care when bunny-proofing his areas for everyone's safety. Young rabbits seem to explore the world with their teeth and can be diverted from chewing the wrong things by being provided with the right things. Paper towel tubes, empty cardboard boxes and rolled newspaper all make great, inexpensive chew toys! 
Star, female bunny, 2 yrs 6.8 lbs
Mcas weblink
194589
Star has probably not been handled much in their past and is still learning that good things can happen when people pick them up. Like many animals they are happiest with all four feet firmly on the ground! They permit handling but are anxious when being held, sometimes they like to be in the middle of everything but strongly object to being contained or even picked up. The more you practice picking them up gently the easier it will be for both of you. Star should go to a home with an experienced owner and kids over 12.

===============

Wallace, male REX bunny - feels like velvet! 1 yr 2 mths, 6.2 lbs
 Transferred to Harmony New Beginnings Animal Rescue!
Please note: HNBAR is a wonderful Rescue Group located on the west side of Portland in Sheridan, Or. They provide - as much as they are able to - a 2nd chance to rescue horses, dogs and other animals.  HNBAR has helped out MCAS with a number of dogs that needed a placement partner to succeed, and now has stepped up again by taking into their care a bunch of the shelter's homeless bunnies.
It's a great Rescue Group to help out if you are inclined to do so!
Thank you HNBAR!
193322
Wallace Is a friendly and social bunny. They love attention, solicit petting and do not mind being picked up gently or even held on your lap. They have been around people and know when humans are around good things happen, like their favorite treats. Wallace would be a good rabbit for a first time bunny owner. Wallace usually uses their litter box but has the occasional accident when out playing. 
Lonnie male bunny, 2 yrs 5.5 lbs  IN FOSTER
Mcas weblink ADOPTED!
191837
Hello, I'm Lonnie, you may have seen me on KOIN for a promo! I've been in here the shelter for over 60 days and would really like to go into a real home soon! Like most rabbits, I am cautious around other rabbits, new people and situations but with your continued attention & patience, I will learn to associate humans with good things like food and pets. Please be consistently gentle with me and your patience will be rewarded! Also, I walk on a leash!!!
**I am taking a break from the shelter and staying in a foster home for a couple weeks. Want to meet me!? Email foster@multco.us to set up a time!
 Jessica Albun, female bunny, 2 yrs 6.5 lbs
Mcas weblink  Transferred to Harmony New Beginnings Animal Rescue!
194692
Jessica Albun is a friendly and social bunny who enjoys attention when in a larger space (like an x-pen). When she feels secure in her surroundings, she will solicit petting and doesn't mind being picked up gently or even held on your lap. Jessica has been around people and know when humans are around good things happen - like their favorite treats! Jessica Albun would be a good rabbit for a first time rabbit owner. She is good about using their litterbox but like most rabbits, will leave a small number of scenting pellets out when out playing. 
Daisy, female bunny, 1 yr 3.5 lbs
Mcas weblink
Transferred to Harmony New Beginnings Animal Rescue!

Frankie the Floof, male bunny, 2 yrs 7.6lbs
Mcas weblink Adopted!
196459
Frankie is a fabulous male Angora who has a gentle soul. He is learning that people are not scary and that we give yummy treats. Be consistently gentle with him and your patience will be rewarded. Like most rabbits Frankie is cautious around new people and situations. Frankie will need a person who will keep him groomed regularly. Due to space constraints & the large number of rabbits currently at MCAS, Frankie is in another part of the shelter not readily accessible to the public - please ask to meet him

 here's my Mcas we-blink  Adopted!
190899
My name is Cassie and I have never met an activity I did not like! If you love exercise and keeping active, then we will be fast friends. I will go for a run in the morning, a hike in the afternoon, play fetch in the evening, and unwind with some play at home before bed - and I would love nothing more than to have someone who can keep up with me. It is important that I have an outlet for my boundless energy, so let us get together and explore the outdoors! I need an adult only home due to some handling sensitivities. I will also need to be the only animal in the home.

Hi, I'm a big playful pup looking for my new home. When I came into the shelter, I was pretty scared. I have come out of my shell a bit, and I am a very playful, and loving pup!

Because of my manners, it is recommended I go home with kids 5 and older. I also need a home without kitties please! They are TOO fun to chase :). Come meet me today! Call me Otis or call me Pineapple, just don't call me late for dinner.
